And since we obviously weren't going to trek out and try out our new sled I thought I would take some pictures of our tree~ I wish I would have done this sooner because most ornaments have been moved, raised or completely removed by little hands then big hands. Better late than never though.
I have no idea where half of my lovely ripped up linen ribbons I made last year ended up in the basement, but they definitely weren't with the ornaments. So I think I will make a few more next year.
We got a sparkly new glitter glass star this year which was very exciting to place at the top!
With the exception of a handful of glass ornaments and the initial ornaments our collection is a steadily growing number of antique handblown ornaments in shades of blue and pink. Here are a few of my favorites:
I like to sprinkle in a handful of glitter glass items from the incredible Wendy Addison as well.
Our latest additions were 6 of these mercury glass ornaments that we found at HomeSense for $5 each! I love the color and huge scale.
After the holidays I think I may have to round up a few more of these huge globe lights I bought at Restoration Hardware. I think an entire tree covered in these would just glow!
Someone waiting to see if she is on the "nice list" (I think she just might be...)
I know most of blog land is on holidays tomorrow, but we will be here sharing some birthday pics and hopefully part 2 to our post below~
